99% of my work is free and accessible for folks who can't afford a paywall.


But if you sign up to support my work, you'll get access to bonus content and extra shenanigans.


Collaborator-Supporters get:

  • Exclusive content

    Get access to all of the exclusive patron-only content, such as the Smashing Wealth Inequality series, problematic book analysis videos, booklists-in-progress , Good Finds, and quarterly polls to help me focus new content where you want it to go.
     
  • Inbox updates

    The only folks who can get inbox updates are patreon supporters - sent whenever I create new Patreon posts.

  • Early Access

    Get sneak peeks on upcoming website articles so you can beat the library rush when our book lists go public.


  • Unpolished Booklist Bonus Content

    Get access to our ever-growing content library of book reviews that I don't have time to polish for public consumption.

    This unfiltered, unpolished content library is where I rant, compile rough-draft collections, and analyze problematic books that don't fit in our seasonal website collections.

LUMINARY
$15 per month

Connect with me and other dedicated Kyriarchy-Smashers

Join the Luminary community where you can feel heard, supported, and safe.


Luminary-Supporters get:

  • You get the same rewards as the Collaborator supporters, plus...
  • Join The Luminary Brain Trust - My favoritest place on the interwebs!

    Join us in The Luminary Brain Trust, a private Facebook group where we're tacking in-depth discussions, troubleshooting challenges, and working together.

    I host two guided posts each week, where we explore and reaffirm ways to keep our personal activism work sustainable.

    Join our Trauma Stewardship discussion to prevent and heal from activist burn out, the Pod Community series on sustaining interdependent communities to raise resilient kids, our grown-up book club discussions on books by Indigenous authors and authors of color, and more in our ongoing weekend open threads.
  • If you have a question or want to connect with me:

    In 2020, I'll only be accessible via email and social media for four months out of the year.

    (You can find out what this has to do decolonization & raising emotionally resilient kids in an upcoming post in the Brain Trust!)

    So if you want to poke me - This is the place to ask questions, get advice from some of the smartest folks I know, and find a community of support.  



Join me and help us figure out how to make this work sustainable and accountable, and also... uhh, there are lots of goofy gifs.

CO-CONSPIRATOR
$50 per month

Spend less time on redundant research and more time smashing the kyriarchy.


I tend to freak out when you support BFL at this above-and-beyond level. I tell all my friends about you.



Shenanigans include:

  • The same rewards as previous tiers, plus…

  • Ethical Peace Of Mind

    Have a clear conscience when you repackage, find inspiration, and spin off the stuff you learn from my work in your personal blog and career assignments.

  • Super-Priority Attention

    This could go unsaid, but OBVIOUSLY I'll prioritize your requests. Once a month, send me private requests for advice or book lists and I'll get back to you as soon as I can.

    I'm not just willing to hear from you, I am eager to help! Because you are a rockstar and I like you.

  • Let's meet up, if that's your thing

    If we’re ever in the same city, let’s get together over coffee (or whatever) to brainstorm how BFL can become even more mega-awesome!   


Illuminati
$180 per month

1 of 2 spots available

Want 1-on-1 guidance?


We're in cahoots.

You're an author, consultant, educator, librarian, literary specialist, organization leader, parent, or anyone who needs private, 1-on-1 time to get answers to your questions. 


Shenanigans include:


  • 1-on-1 Consulting

    30-45 minutes of my undivided attention each month on a topic of your choice, via phone, online chat, email, or video chat.

  • Ethical Accountability Guidance

    Confidence that you're taking steps to create an inclusive organization. I'll give you gentle, honest advice when your material or policies need tweaking.

  • I Shall Sing Your Praises

    I'm happy to boost your organization and tell everyone about it (with full transparency, and only if your organization really is awesome and right for readers).

  • Emotional Labor & Experienced Wisdom

    I get a LOT of people who just want to connect with me for phone calls 1-on-1 but it takes me about a 2 days to prepare and another half-day to follow up after our meeting. I have to pay for childcare while you pick my brain.

    This covers my expenses while I give you access to years of my expertise, research, and do the emotional labor dance of gently addressing all your questions.

    From there, we'll create a plan for how you can move forward with your project.


  • Clear Step-By-Step Guidance

    When you schedule your monthly consult, I'll reach out with easy-to-answer questions so I can make the best use of our time together.

    During our time, I'll share clear accountability guidelines to make sure you feel safe sharing and brainstorming.

    After, I follow up with resources, a recap of our talk, and action steps to easily implement the plans we discussed.


This is mostly contract-style work outside of patreon, but I have it listed here for reference. Contact me for availability and to find out how becoming an Illuminati can work for you.
